Statement from Rep. Hintz on Governor Jim Doyle's State of the State Address

“Governor Doyle’s State of the State address rightly focused on the challenges of these tough economic times. He highlighted the important investments we have made on the state level to assist those who have lost their jobs, preserve existing jobs, and create new jobs to build the Wisconsin economy for future generations. While every state has been hit hard during this far-reaching global economic crisis, Wisconsin has fared better than many states due to our focus and creativity on economic development. I look forward to working with my colleagues the remainder of this session as we build tools that will enable us to bring new jobs to Wisconsin. By broadening the incentives we have already created, we will strengthen Wisconsin and give businesses the opportunity to expand their current workforce.

Many of the Governor’s new proposals on clean energy and health insurance are intriguing, but I remain concerned about the long term impact on our budget beyond the Governor’s time in office.”
